You will find below the frequently asked questions relating to registration for the Sélections Mondiales des Vins competition.
The registration period for the 2023 edition is from May 10 to September 1, 2023. If you already have an account, you can register your wines by clicking here. If this is your first time, you can create a user account here.
The one-time registration fee is $269 CAD per product, including Canadian taxes.
Canadian taxes (federal and provincial) of 14.975% are included in the displayed price. All participants will have to pay the taxes, since the Canadian federal law requires it, considering that the contest takes place on Canadian soil.
You can register your wines in a few easy steps.
1- Create your user code
If this is your first time participating in the competition and you do not have a user account on our website, you can create one by clicking here.
2- Register a wine
You can register a wine by clicking here or on the “Registration” tab in the menu bar of the website. On the registration page, choose the category of wine to be registered and click on “Add a wine”. Your wine will be listed in the shopping cart. To add another wine, you must repeat the same process.
3- Send your samples to the Sélections Mondiales des Vins competition
You can order and pay for the shipping of your samples directly on the site, in your shopping cart. In collaboration with Eurofret, which offers you very competitive exclusive shipping packages, your samples will be picked up door-to-door for the contest and will be delivered to our Montreal warehouse for validation and preparation for the contest. If your country does not appear in the drop-down list or if the quantity of samples offered does not correspond to your register, please write to us at [email protected].
4- Pay customs fees
Customs fees are mandatory for each producer who registers for our competition. To do this, you must add a customs fee to your shopping cart. Note that you must enter only one customs duty per producer. Whether you have one or more products, a single customs duty is sufficient per producer. We strongly recommend that you add this service to your registration and pay the customs fees at this time to avoid delays at customs. If your wines arrive at Canadian customs and you have not paid the customs, your samples will be held until you make payment.
EXCEPTION: Please note that producers whose wines entered in the competition are already on Canadian soil do not have to pay customs fees (Canadian producers, international producers whose products are in Canada (private import, agent in Canada).
5- Terms of payment
By credit card on our website www.smvcanada.ca, when registering online. We accept all credit cards and bank (debit) cards through Stripe. Please ensure you make all necessary changes to your registration BEFORE clicking the “Pay” button.
CAUTION: Once this chosen option, you will not be able to go back or modify your registration for the contest. There is no refund.
